Our beautiful Charlie works for the New Zealand AIDS Foundation “I am passionate about community involvement, especially working towards a greater discussion about HIV so we can dispel the myths and misconceptions. These hinder the ability of HIV+ people to lead a wonderful, authentic life free of stigma and are also a barrier to reducing the rate of new infections.” Way to go Charlie!
